AARP TaxAide seeks volunteers for 2006

This year, AARP TaxAide, the nation's largest, free volunteer-run tax counseling and preparation service, is seeking volunteers to assist in tax preparation and to become leadership coordinators in Juneau.

Tax counselors receive free tax training and become IRS certified by passing the IRS exam. They help customers one-on-one at tax sites.

Leadership positions coordinate program delivery by volunteers at sites at the local and state level. Although tax training and certification is encouraged, it is not required for many leadership positions.

Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome, and do not need to be an AARP member or a retiree.

Volunteers are reimbursed on a limited basis for qualified program-related expenses. For more information about becoming a local AARP TaxAide volunteer, call 1-888-227-7669, visit the website at or call Vicky Sleasman at 907-826-2730.
